It’s Your Planet
Green living is something that attracts enthusiasm and scorn in seemingly equal measures.
For every person who embraces the idea as something that we all should do, there are at least a few who will view it as a “scam” and a way of getting money out of people by tripping their guilt reflex.
For someone who is keen to avoid making anyone angry, it can be a difficult balance to strike.
But when it comes down to it, the fact is that there is a lot of merit in living in an environmentally friendly way.
Now, this does not mean that you have to throw out your possessions and replace them with greener alternatives. You don’t have to massively disrupt your life to make it green.
What you need to look at is the ways that you may be polluting or contributing to an environmentally unfriendly world and thinking how you could change things for the better – every long journey starts with a single step.
If it is a simple matter of recycling your newspapers or walking instead of driving short distances, that’s fine.
What you will find is that living in a green way does not put you to very much extra effort.
You won’t be able to drive back global warming or air pollution all on your own, but the difference you can make in your own area without having to go to immense lengths is really something.
And once you’ve got the ball rolling, you’ll see a lot of other changes that you can make.
